Note: This can be *really* busy with walkers at peak times.

Long path taking in West Kip, East Kip, Scald Law (highest point in the Pentlands), Carnethy and Turnhouse.

Apart from the initial climb to West Kip, the climbs are all rideable. The descents off the peaks are steep in places with plenty of line choice. Part way down some of the descents there are sections of gravel paths with lots of switchbacks.
